The other day as I was unsuccessfully hurrying out the door for work, I was also trying to tell Matt that many people in our condo building were interested in making a group donation in honor of a neighbor who died last week. (I’m organizing the donation.) Given my frazzled state, I was having a bit of a word retrieval issue.
Me: “Sounds like most of our neighbors are interested in doing a…” (and here I faltered, so a long pause ensued)
Baxter (filling in the blank from the breakfast table): “…blog?”
Not only was this funny because, well, it’s just hilarious to hear the word “blog” from a child’s mouth (although it was even funnier when my 86-year old grandmother referred to it as my “blob” today on the phone), but because the very idea of our condo neighbors writing a collective blog just killed us.
Think about it: if your closest neighbors were to start a group blog, what would it be like? Do tell.
